World Town Planning Day | UNBC Student Planners Association

World Town Planning Day | Everyone Welcome!

Event is Free

On Wednesday November 8, 2017, the University of Northern British Columbia’s Student Planners Association would like you to join us in celebrating World Town Planning Day! 

What is World Town Planning Day (WTPD)? 

WTPD is an international day celebrating the accomplishments of planners and their contributions to their communities! Countries around the world have celebrated WTPD since 1949 and this year more than 30 countries will be celebrating alongside us!

What is Planning?

We hear this question a lot, we even ask this question a lot! Simply put, ‘Planning’ looks at the past, to make decisions for the present, while considering the needs of the future. 

Join us for a guided walking tour in the heart of downtown where members of the Student Planners Association will show how Planning has influenced and shaped the city of Prince George. We’ll follow up with some snacks and refreshments at Omineca Arts Centre where we can discuss and learn more about what it means to ‘Plan’ and the roles that Planners play in our communities!

When: 
5:00 pm - Omineca Arts Centre (1119 3rd Avenue, Prince George) 
5:30 pm - Walking Tour* (leaving Omineca Arts Centre)
6:30 pm – Return for snacks and refreshments

*Weather permitting – other activities will be prepared in the event of weather limitations
